Fokker F. Hokkaido Hokkaido known as Ezo, Yeso , or Yesso , is the second largest island of Japan , the largest and northernmost prefecture. The Tsugaru Strait separates Hokkaido from Honshu ; the two islands are connected by the undersea railway Seikan Tunnel.
The largest city on Hokkaido is its capital, its only ordinance-designated city. About 43 km north of Hokkaido lies Russia. To its east and north-east are the disputed Kuril Islands ; the Nihon Shoki , finished in AD, is said to be the first mention of Hokkaido in recorded history. According to the text, Abe no Hirafu led a large navy and army to northern areas from to and came into contact with the Mishihase and Emishi. One of the places Hirafu went to was called Watarishima, believed to be present-day Hokkaido. However, many theories exist in relation to the details of this event, including the location of Watarishima and the common belief that the Emishi in Watarishima were the ancestors of the present-day Ainu people.
During the Nara and Heian periods, people in Hokkaido conducted trade with Dewa Province , an outpost of the Japanese central government. From the Middle Ages , the people in Hokkaido began to be called Ezo. Hokkaido subsequently became known as Ezogashima; the Ezo relied upon hunting and fishing and obtained rice and iron through trade with the Japanese. During the Muromachi period , the Japanese created a settlement at the south of the Oshima Peninsula ; as more people moved to the settlement to avoid battles, disputes arose between the Japanese and the Ainu.
The disputes developed into a war. Takeda Nobuhiro killed the Ainu leader and defeated the opposition in Nobuhiro's descendants became the rulers of the Matsumae-han, granted exclusive trading rights with the Ainu in the Azuchi-Momoyama and Edo periods; the Matsumae family's economy relied upon trade with the Ainu. They held authority over the south of Ezochi until the end of the Edo period in ; the Matsumae clan rule over the Ainu must be understood in the context of the expansion of the Japanese feudal state.

Feudal strongmen sometimes located themselves within medieval institutional order, taking shogunal titles, while in other times they assumed titles that seemed to give them a non-Japanese identity. In fact, many of the feudal strongmen were descended from Emishi military leaders, assimilated into Japanese society; the Matsumae clan were of Yamato descent like other ethnic Japanese people, whereas the Emishi of northern Honshu were a distinctive group related to the Ainu. The Emishi were conquered and integrated into the Japanese state dating back as far as the 8th century, as result began to lose their distinctive culture and ethnicity as they became minorities.
There were numerous revolts by the Ainu against the feudal rule.

The last large-scale resistance was Shakushain's Revolt in — In , a smaller movement, the Menashi—Kunashir rebellion, was crushed. After that rebellion, the terms "Japanese" and "Ainu" referred to distinguished groups, the Matsumae were unequivocally Japanese.
In — and —, the Edo Shogunate took direct control over Hokkaido in response to a perceived threat from Russia. Leading up to the Meiji Restoration , the Tokugawa Shogunate realized there was a need to prepare northern defenses against a possible Russian invasion and took over control of most of Ezochi ; the Shogunate made the plight of the Ainu easier, but did not change the overall form of rule.
Hokkaido was known as Ezochi until the Meiji Restoration. Shortly after the Boshin War in , a group of Tokugawa loyalists led by Enomoto Takeaki temporarily occupied the island, but the rebellion was crushed in May Ezochi was subsequently put under control of Hakodate Prefectural Government.
